In  
<http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/REC-html401-19991224/interact/scripts.html#adef-type-SCRIPT>  
it is unclear why "type" can not just take the "default scripting  
language" as default value and therefore be made optional. The SVG WG does  
specify a default scripting language (ECMAScript) and allow users not to  
specify that for ease of authoring. This default is also what is commonly  
implemented by HTML UAs. Please change the draft so that the HTML  
specificationn does this too and ease of authoring is ensured.
